Apple "European Union regulators are examining the contracts Apple strikes with cellphone carriers that sell its iPhone for possible antitrust violations after several carriers complained that the deals throttled competition." Well paint me red and call me a girl scout.

Girl Scout, Indeed

This sounds like a couple of puny, ineffectual carriers in France asking for a handout from the EU, not like anything that's problematic on Apple's end. Of course, Thom will use the opportunity to bash Apple (even though he hates the carriers and claims Apple is getting crushed in Europe) and to whip out his tired, nonsensical Dutch idiom that no one else cares for or understands.

Why are you so hateful?

and to whip out his tired, nonsensical Dutch idiom that no one else cares for or understands.


It's not Dutch. It's American.

I don't see my comment as any more hateful than your faux-surprise/dismay.

I'll call it a Dutch idiom as you are the sole perpetrator and person who thinks its actually funny/interesting/apropos/worth using/worth trying to get people to appreciate despite the fact that the 10,000 kids that watched Cow & Chicken a decade ago have completely forgotten about it.
